Napoli’s bid for a Serie A 3rd round match against Juventus was denied by the Italian Football Federation’s Appeal Committee.
A technical loss with a score of 0:3 was awarded to the Napoli club. For failing to appear in the match against Juventus, one point was deducted from the squad.
Due to a coronavirus outbreak in the squad, Napoli’s departure for the match in Turin was blocked by the regional health service.
The team headed by Gennaro Gattuso required the match to be postponed because Napoli had been barred from traveling to Turin by the local health authority. Serie A claimed that there were no reasons to delay the match.
